NASA will soon launch astronauts from U.S. soil for the first time since the space shuttle’s retirement aboard @boeing
commercial spacecraft! 🚀
This month, Boeing finished the dual engine Centaur for the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket that will launch its Starliner spacecraft in the uncrewed Orbital Flight Test.
SpaceX shipped its Crew Dragon spacecraft to @nasakennedy
to prep for the uncrewed Demo-1 test flight. Both Starliner and Crew Dragon will carry astronauts to the International Space Station (@ISS
) as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program on future missions. Watch for important crew announcements this Friday!

Exciting news! Next Friday, we will announce the astronauts who will be on the first crewed launches from U.S. soil since the final space shuttle mission in 2011. They will launch aboard new @boeing
commercial spacecraft to the International Space Station (@iss

Spacewalks are the hardest thing, physically and mentally, that astronauts do. Our 2017 NASA Astronauts train in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (giant pool used to simulate weightlessness) to learn the skills to complete complex spacewalks.

How much do you know about Michael Collins, Apollo 11 crew member? Collins remained in the command module "Columbia" in lunar orbit while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon. He was the only person in the command module orbiting the Moon for the multi-day duration of Armstrong and Aldrin’s trip to the lunar surface #OTD
in 1969. He performed the re-docking maneuvers that brought Armstrong and Aldrin safely back to the command module after their ascent from the lunar surface.
shows an inscription he left on the mount of a navigation device called a sextant aboard Apollo 11.
shows him practicing the procedure a month before the mission.
